Underappreciated in my opinion, as good or better than a lot of bands that often charted at the time.



Used to think she was singing Alan Shearer did great (she wasn't sadly)



Played this album to death, very catchy



Love this video, love the Duffle coats! They were great live, gamely carried on until end of last year.

What a great band Rollerskate Skinny were. They had a weird and wonderful sound yet still managed to pack in some pop hooks and killer tunes such as this one.

Never a big fan of the Jesus and Mary Chain but always loved this song.

Far Gone and Out.

more welsh goodness; SFA are still going (well, they're on hiatus but Gruff Rhys is still churning out great records) - this is from their very first EP in 1995 & has an amazing ending:

Sometime the most interesting things a band does is not their mainstream offering.
